After an intense film session in which Bruce Arians broke down every player, he stated he was most surprised by RB Peyton Barber. “We have a running back. We have a big fast, strong RB.” – Arians stated after viewing film of the Bucs starting RB.
Over the last 2 seasons, Barber has a mediocre 3.8 ypc, but he has the skill set to become great. At 230lbs he is a huge back to try to bring down add that to his elusiveness, with his 4 carries of 20-yds or more, and it’s a recipe for success. Look for Arians to use Barber to wear down opposing defenses in order to take shots down the field.
